Art journal pages 23 , 24, and 25 are done specifically for the “Modern artists challenge “at the
Page 23 “Ostensible” is inspired by my one of the favorites – Salvador Dali.
It is a surreal mixed-media collage/acrylic painting. For the art journal I like adding some words of wisdom. There are two quotes for the page about the ROAD.
Yogi Berra:” When you arrive at the fork on the road, take it!”
Lewis Carroll: “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”
It was a real challenge for me. I like the color palette used by Matisse, so I focused on the color choice, portrait details and decorative elements taking my inspiration after Matisse’s art work “Portrait of Delekorskaya”, “La Gerbe”, and “Aicha and Lorette”.
